The show begins.
The New Moon in Gemini enters this weekend, opening the curtain on a month of drama.
The key is to remember that a drama - a performance, an active narrative - is taking place, and not to get too sucked in to it. We want to remain in our seats, which are not really seats at all. Energetically speaking, we are seated on comfy magic carpets and can leave the "theatre" any time we like. We can return any time we like. And there are no lines.
Subplots of the drama this month include the following themes, which may be introduced into the story this weekend:
1- LIKE MINDED PEOPLE BROUGHT TOGETHER TO SHARE, CREATE, and COLLABORATE - As the sign of The Twins, Gemini energy is related "the other." Mercury rules the sign, networking and delivering within the field of consciousness. During the New Moon phase, people/places/things may show up on the scene for development throughout the lunar month.
2- RETURN/REPEAT OF AN OLD PATTERN, HABIT, or SITUATION - This is not necessarily a bad thing, as it brings the opportunity to go back and refine or re-assert something. Things are pointed out to us for review.
3- THE PAST BROUGHT TO LIGHT - When this occurs, it is to bring relief to emotional, mental, and physical strife.
4- LOOKING FOR SOMETHING AND FINDING IT
5- FORTIFICATION OF WILLPOWER - Something inside each of us wants expression this month, and the impetus to get it done is empowered.
6- NOT SETTLING FOR LESS
7- EXPLORING THE UNCONSIDERED OR UNFAMILIAR
8- ACTIONS AIMED AT DIVIDING AND CONQUERING - This will be big this month. Let's not fall for the trick.
9- VENTING AND BLOWING - Ample potential for eruptions is present. Conflicts and issues drastically present themselves to be addressed. There is also a theme of filtering out what is no longer appropriate. Along with this is also ample potential for inspiration and ideas.
10 - WIDE OPEN FIELDS CHANGE VIEWPOINTS AND DIRECTIONS
Showtime. Happy New Moon!
